World War II... the Parisian summer of '42
on June 11, 2013
La Rafle (The Roundup) gives us a glimpse of the atrocities committed during WW II. This particular movie focusses on Petain, the French police, and the crimes they perpetrated against the Parisian Jewish community. I have known about this
particular subject since I read Sarah's Key. I often wonder how people can so easily turn against neighbors, especially when the majority are children. This movie is heartbreaking; it reminds us that ignorance and power are a lethal combination but it also reinforces that fact that there are always good people in the midst of chaos. For anyone interested in WW II history this movie is a "must see".
